I had my first teeth cleaning at Dr Brends office today. Tamra did a great job with the cleaning. It was completely painless. I actually made the appointment because I had a filling fall out of my front tooth. Needless to say I was really embarrassed to smile. Dr Megan was sympathetic to my dental emergency and worked me into the schedule to fix my tooth the same day. She was gentle and the filling blends well with my natural teeth.

Old front desk lady is cranky, but get over her and the people working with you are super kind and kinda funny. My cleaning went smoothly and the Dentist showed me areas of concern, but only one cavity to fill. My last dentist two years ago said I had three that I never filled. Guess he was wrong.

Unfortunately we are seeking dentistry elsewhere. I believe Dr Brend is just to old to be working on teeth. The staff is WONDERFUL and so kind but myself my son and my mom have been having problems with fillings and things that needed to be fixed. Its just time to move on.

My family is new to Bismarck and a co-worker recommended we go to Dr Brend. We are very pleased with our experience. The staff is helpful and friendly. I was also impressed with Dr Brend, he was very personable and honest.

I am very pleased with my experience at Brend Dental. I was seen for the first time this past Saturday when I had a toothache. The doctor fixed my tooth and I feel so much better. I would recommend Brend Dental.

Our family has been seeing Dr Brend since 2001 when we moved here-we have never been disappointed. I love the addition of Megan to the office and we have ALWAYS been treated very well!

The doctors are kind and work pretty quick. The receptionists are amazing! They have all the answers, and are helpful in getting you an emergency appointment.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
